Xbox titles including Hi-Fi Rush, Sea of Thieves coming to Switch and PlayStation

Posted on February 22, 2024

It’s official; Xbox games are now making their way to other console platforms, including Nintendo Switch and PlayStation.

Off the back of their business update podcast last week and lots of speculation as to which games might make the jump to other platforms, it was confirmed today that Pentiment, Grounded, Sea of Thieves and Hi-Fi Rush will all be appearing elsewhere in the coming months.

In the official Xbox Wire post, President of Game Content & Studios, Matt Booty, said “At Xbox, we strive to create games that inspire, entertain, and connect players from around the world. As a publisher and platform we are committed to meeting players where they are, by bringing more games, to more people, and on more devices. And at the heart of all we do are our players, and the vibrant communities that they build around the games they love.”
